Opinions wanted for basement humidity levels

I was wonder what the consensus here is that a basements humidity level should be. I have mine down to 60% and am maintianing 60% with a dehumidifier, should it be lower? We have no water problems nor do we have any condensation issues. We are using the basement for storage of wood, paper and plastic products.
Thanks

OK that sounds good, we have no mold growing and we only use the basement for laundry and storage. I just didn't want to needlessly run the dehumidifier any lower if I don't have to. The humidity level is at 60% +- right now with the dehumidifer running in cycles rather than on constantly
Thanks again
